Partner/potential partner having a nerdy or weird collection?

4 posts in this topic

How would you feel if a partner/potential partner had a nerdy (doll, action figure, or general toy) collection. Or a collection deactivated to a favorite movie/show/game/band/sports team, ETC...) Or something weird like objects featuring a certain animal or something?

What if they collected something usually associated with the opposite gender (guys collecting dolls, girls collecting Star Wars)?

I'm completely okay with a partner/potential partner having a collection of some kind, it's not like I don't have any of my own. :D Though I might not like it much if he collected something I didn't like or care about (like Harry Potter stuff), though it wouldn't really be a deal breaker.

As long as he doesn't collect something gross, creepy (like locks of hair from ex's, or has some creepy celebrity shrine), or has a sexual fixation with what he collects or collects something of a sexual nature (sex toys, porn), or has a collection that takes up so much of his funds that he struggles to pay bills and feed himself, then it's fine.

So what are your thoughts? This is a topic I thought of about an hour ago, and I don't think there's a thread about this. :)

It depends on the collection.

As long as it isn't something weird like you said, but the only thing that would be a deal breaker for me is if the collection becomes an obsession to the point where the person can't part with it no matter what. Things in this world are simply just that, things. If they can't be discarded then the person has a problem with how they assign value to the things around them.

Eh...I don't care if he's got collections, as long as they aren't of the creepy type...as you mentioned.

i don't care if I am Ito his stuff, or not. I've never care if we had too much in common, as I've mentioned in other posts. I have always wanted to be with someone who was quite different than me. So that we could share each other's worlds, once in a while, but also still have our own little worlds of our own. I think it helps if you can do things on your own, but also it will expand your horizons to share.

So, if he collects cars, Star Wars stuff, Star Trek stuff, trolls, vintage comic books, vintage video games, movies, or whatever, I'd probably just want him to talk to me about them, as I'd want to share my loves with him.

If he collected minerals or carnival glass it would be awesome! Because I collect those and dolls too. I think it would be wonderful to find a fellow collector and I'd probably be into his collection too. Now if it was old lawn mowers or something equally terrible I'd have an issue with it.
